POLISH DESIGN AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP

VIENNA DESIGN WEEK

30.9.2018, 3pm–4pm

What sets Polish design apart? What makes it special and unique? Because of its design culture, which produces primarily high-quality furniture and product design, Poland has long been established as a country with a vibrant independent scene. Experts from this year’s VIENNA DESIGN WEEK Guest Country will shine a light on this tradition and also emerging trends. Whether designers returning after residencies abroad or others who establish themselves on international markets from a base in Poland, the ways to manage a balancing act between a brand’s commercial success and local identity are as varied as the speakers themselves.

With: Tomek Rygalik (Studio Rygalik, designer and curator), Maria Jeglińska (Office of Design & Research, designer), chmara.rosinke (Design studio)
